RFR (XXS): 77150579: build-infra merge: Langtools, move ant dependency into separate package.

the dependency on ant for the langtools repo, encoded into the build
tools CompilePropertiesTask and GenStubs,
can be separated into a separate package.

This enables build-infra makefiles to compile langtools without the
ant.jar simply by avoiding the ant specific package.
Ant can of course still be used to build langtools.


Builds fine using ant, even when genstubs is tricked to actually be used, which it normally is not.

Feedback welcome!
